After one passable season and one major disappointment at DePaul, Hunter crushed
the competition in Chicago. He demonstrated the hunger and tenacity that were
missing from his college play -- blocking shots and scoring often with a quick,
hard-to-block jump hook. He'll be hard to keep out of the first round.
Strengths: Agile and quick Hunter moves down the court with the best of them .... Very good
shot-blocker with excellent timing and quick leaping ability to go with Hunter's
long arms .... Starting to learn that he can make a impact on a game defensively
... Very athletic has excellent mobility often beats opposing defenders on the
baseline or down the court where he has the finishing ability to complete a play
.... Posses good hands and excellent ball handling skills for a big man ...
Biggest thing going for him right now is that he has a tremendous amount of
untapped potential .... Good shot selection understands what his limits are
offensively and doesn't shoot questionable shots... Is starting to pick up some
post fundamentals such as a hook shot and an up and under move to his arsenal...
Weakness: Doesn't really play well when facing a physical defender ... Really needs to
cut-down on his turnovers mainly due to the fact that he is a very poor passer
who doesn't really see the floor that well... Goes through periods when his lack
of confidence hurts his game performance ... Hasn't really learned how to play
with his back to the basket although I think this has more to do with his poor
post footwork with better work in this area he would be much more effective ...
First thing Hunter must do is gain weight at 7-0 220 he will be pushed around in
the lane .... Because of his lack of muscle he often has problems establishing
position for himself in the low post whether it's posting up for offense or
boxing out for rebounds ... Really suffered from the free throw line this year
although I think this has more to do from a mental standpoint than ability ...
